Langham Hospitality Group’s 13th hotel in China and 25th property in the group’s global portfolio has opened – Langham Place, Changsha.
The 295-room hotel is located within Da Wang Shan Resort, a world-class tourist destination southwest of Changsha. The complex is surrounded by striking natural landscapes, which include the Da Wang Shan, Xiang River, Tongxi Lake, Baxi Island and Xiangjiang Happy City.
Within Da Wang Shan Resort, and easily accessible by hotel guests, are multiple entertainment and amusement parks which include one of the world’s largest indoor ski slopes, Snow World, The Deep Pit Ice, and a water park featuring a 60-metre high waterfall.
“We are very proud to introduce Langham Place, Changsha to the city and manage this new landmark hotel within this dynamic entertainment complex,” said Stefan Leser, CEO of Langham Hospitality Group. “The arrival of our brand and the opening of this stunning hotel will further enhance the guest’s experiences at Dawang Mountain Resort and this historically rich city of Changsha.”
Designed by renowned international architect Wolf D. Prix of Coop Himmelblau, the hotel is connected to Snow World via a plaza.
Hotel rooms range from a spacious 36 square metres for the deluxe room to a generous 255 square metres for the Presidential Suite. Families may select from a range of accommodation including the Executive Two-Bedroom Suites.
Each room is equipped with The Langham’s famous blissful bed, and furnished with a warm, neutral colour palette.
Three different dining concepts are available; The Place – a vibrant all-day dining restaurant; Ming Court – inspired by its Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant counterparts in Hong Kong and Shanghai, and will present diners with a fine-dining experience, featuring the freshest seasonal ingredients in an elegant setting; and Peak, the bar located at the highest level of the hotel offers a panoramic view of the Xiangjiang Happy City and Changsha’s city skyline.
A tradition which started at The Langham, London in 1865, English afternoon tea will be served to guests at The Salon. Guests may indulge in a bespoke version of the afternoon tea experience where speciality teas are served, accompanied by delicate savoury and sweet delicacies created by the talented pastry team.
The award-winning Chuan Spa is also on-site for guests seeking a wellness sanctuary to pamper and restore balance to the mind, body and soul.
